Poured up on tap at the brewpub where there’s a clear copper body that supports a nice looking off white head. The aroma offers up a mix of grapefruit, a dash of pine hops and faint sweet maltiness. The taste begins with firm up front pine hop bitterness that’s blended with bitter tangelo and grapefruit like citrus hops. It builds into mild malt and malt sweetness to midway that helps enhance a modest citrus hop flavor note. This is a nice bitter hop forward brew where there’s still some balance to go along with the firm, late ’90’s feel to the hop profile.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden, small head. Extrovert lychee aroma. Mid sweet with well rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Rather intnse hoppiness - pineapple and lychee dominates. Severe late bitterness, but still hop aromas are what drives this beer.

deyholla (6483) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Can. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a nice note of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of backing pine and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more of a pine/grapefruit hop profile with a bit of citrus in the finish and not much of a malt profile.

Nice gold pour, white head. Aroma is full of grapefruit peel and piney hops. Nice bitter hops on the tongue, some grassy bitterness. Good stuff.

A beautiful beer, has great lacing and a really pleasant aroma of hops. The actual taste of the beer is pretty good but its just a little to bitter for me to drink these often.

thirdeye11 (5479) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2013
(12oz can thanks to SaucerSam) cloudy medium gold, oily tan head with excellent lacing. Nose is super fresh citrus, grapefruit, funky, herbal, very light onion that’s not offensive. Taste of fresh citrus, light and balanced grapefruit, smells so much fresher than it tastes, bit of biscuit and yeasty. Light body, easy to drink, oily body, no bitter linger

Can - Pours beautiful amber with a thick white head. Nose is nice herbal/citrus/pine/spice hops mix, orange marmalade, and a biscuity malt base. Taste has lots of resiny citrus hoppiness, light spicy herbals, and orange marmalade/bread malt base. Smooth and fluffy body. Real nice stuff.

Aroma is full of hop goodness and the expression there carries over in the flavor. Bitterness is tuned up a bit and dominates slightly. The body is significant and on the heavy side for an IPA. This heft is appealing but the beer remains refreshing.

The way American IPA should be! Simcoe + Columbus is awesome. Piney, citrus and tropical fruit, resin. Just a hint of malt for balance and drink ability, but hops rule. Just a hint of onion in the nose, otherwise awesome.
